Coronavirus: Millionaire Wetherspoon's boss tells staff to consider working for Tesco

Mullet man taking time off from moaning about the EU to screw over his own staff.

The millionaire boss of Wetherspoon pubs has suggested his 40,000 staff should go to work at Tesco amid uncertainty over their futures due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Tim Martin indicated the company would not continue to pay employees who were now not working after pubs in the UK were closed to stop the spread of Covid-19.

Instead, in a rambling video sent out late on Monday, the 64-year-old said that supermarkets were hiring and wished his workers good luck.

The new controversy comes just days after Mr Martin urged the government not to shut pubs and said there was no evidence the virus spread within them.
